That (gasp) atheist Christopher Hitchens' comments on Beck Rally and other things.

"That ludicrous view is one that I *thought* was held of people who speak out against the president, congress or the direction of the country, but to see it admitted and to thus far be the only one to speak out against it brings a sad end to the question of whether or not my thought of what a liberal viewed those who protest to look like and think was possibly

“For the last 40-plus years we had a ‘Southern Strategy’ that alienated many minority voters by focusing on the white male vote in the South. Well, guess what happened in 1992, folks, ‘Bubba’ went back home to the Democratic Party and voted for Bill Clinton.”


Possibly he's also what you consider to be a "non-credible" source, and someone who doesn't know what he's talking about as far as RNC strategies, and that's okay with me.

What are you talking about??? My brand of tolerance??? What brand is that?


Keep thinking as you do. I encourage it. It is rampant and wrong among those of your persuasion. The ship is sinking, but statements and beliefs like yours keep poking more and more holes in the hull.

If one knows what the southern strategy is, then one would understand why most blacks wouldn't vote for a political party adhering to that strategy. It isn't a matter of being "suchered". It is a matter of not voting for people who sidle up to those who don't like black people.

That's an interesting take you have on the issue. Did you read the article I posted about how the states won over by republicans during the southern strategy were also the states that supported civil rights

I will reiterate. The southern strategy reversed the tables (as it were). No longer did the Republican party, the party of Lincoln, stand for what Lincoln stood for in terms of relationship with black people. They overtook/took advantage of a voting demographic in the south that was decidedly not in favor of the advancement of blacks. It was a calculation that meant appealing to the baser instincts and biases of that special voting demographic. It worked, but it was obvious to black people who seemed to see that the Republican party was the party that once was for the advancement of black people, but reversed its stances/appeal toward black people by focusing on the particular demographic that would hold black people in their (then) "place."
